Looking forward to meeting awesome people.

It's so helpful that the documentation talks about when to use `getDerivedStateFromProps()` in its documenation reactjs.org/docs/react-compone

I was about to use this method for a debounced search field, which would have probably lead to disappearing text bugs.
Their proposed 'fully uncontrolled component with a key' was a much neater solution.

Apparently convincing people that we should work on code quality is not that straight forward. People agree, they say they're aware of it, but don't actually do anything about it.

To those of you who are part of large developer teams, what techniques do you use to keep the master branch stable?

I know the gitflow workflow is something we can try atlassian.com/git/tutorials/co

Do you also do other things? Not necessarily git workflows.

Nice insight from the "JavaScript: The Hard Parts" course on FrontendMasters:

There's easy learning, where you get spoon-fed by watching a course, and hard learning, where you go solve a problem or build stuff.

There are also two traps to avoid while doing hard learning:
- the researcher trap, where you get lost in documentation and not finish anything.
- the stack overflow trap, where you just copy paste and don't understand the solution.

Pair programming is a good middle-ground.

It's an awesome 5-minute sort-of-game by Nicky Case. A pertinent commentary on journalism and how it influences our behavior, and the timing was perfect.

Also, it's open source!

Currently learning about the internals of a framework with the single purpose of removing it from a legacy codebase.

Note to self: split your tasks and make separate pull requests for each subtask.
Do not spend another two months on a PR under any circumstance.
